Subject: Wish I was Here
Half way through With No Definite Future Jim tosses in a little wrinkle and we hear a little whoop from an audience member, so he tosses in another tidbit, gets another whoop, and at the end he says "OK we're getting warmed up now ... and so are you." I've seen this before at live shows and it's usually a sign that the band is gonna give up something special. This is the first set I'm downloading in all .shn's. Very different versions than the GAMH show from Jan of that year. More Jeff Beck than Pink Floyd PS I've been a fan of both their recordings and shows since the days of vinyl and am thrilled to find these recordings. The Shi-Tones (my Tshirt says "Shitones - Glad I didn't step into it") are the guitarist with different drummer and sometimes different bassist performing with less feedback and more covers of classics - their Beach Chalet shows are legend.

Subject: I was there!
It was a surreal experience. Fernwood is a tiny venue and there couldnât have been more than 50 people there. Very dark and intimate. There was minimal stage lighting except for a video projector directed directly over the band showing things like amateur videos of house fires, surfing videos, and fractal designs. Lots of mood to match the music. The overall effect was like Surf meets Haight Asbury. I canât believe the sound quality of these recordings. You would have thought there was a massive board and tons of equipment in the back, but I donât remember seeing anything. It was just the band and their own amps. I think the guitarist used a 60âs Fender Twin and the bass player used a classic tube Ampeg SVT with two massive 4 by 4 cabinates set up. Lots of warm, clean, classic sound. What a great concert. What a great recording. What a great band!

Subject: Great sound
Must have been a great show to attend, sound quality is very crisp and there's a "feel" to it.
However it should be noted that the tracklisting is a little broken around the change between CD2 & CD3 but that's not to say that there's anything wrong with the music though :).

Really worth a listen if you've even the slightest interest in the mermen!

Subject: New To the Mermen...
This was the first show I downloaded and listened to by the Mermen. Wow, what a great choice! I ran across this band by accident, but, I've never been more pleased with my luck! I've since downloaded a couple more Mermen shows and am freaked out by their musical stamina... Now to check out their tour dates!! Good Stuff!!

Subject: Wow
The quality of sound in this recording is just sick. Amazing clarity, separation between instruments, appropriate crowd noise, and overall great presence. The bass and cymbals are exceptoinal - something that normally lacks in the live recordings I've heard. Everybody at the show seems to be having fun and the band is on fire. It's 3 hours long, but at the end someone in the crowd yells for more, and you want to join in. Good stuff.
